The Raiders run defense which ranked near the bottom last year is rearing its ugly head once again. Their neighbors across the Bay; the 49ers gashed The Silver & Black to the tune of 275 yards (this w/Frank Gore only carrying the rock twice). We all know its preseason and the d-line won't play as hard but, if this is an omen is not a very good one. The Saints provide a 1-2 punch of Pierre Thomas & Reggie Bush and maybe the Raiders defense will play better since this is such a pivotal game for so many players.
